A nice little pizza place with great tasting pizza and onion rings. They have a lot of specialty pizzas on the menu just in case your looking for something more than the traditional toppings. The had a good selection of beers.

My only complaint is the crust. Seemed overly bland and tasteless compared to the rest of the pizza. Great customer service and beer on tap. Awesome to see an American pizza joint pull off pizza creations such as this. You need to go at least...More

Best thin crust pizza I've had in years. Not to be outdone, the chef salad was the best I've ever ever had. Fantastic friendly staff.
